Modern Foyer / March 4, 2018 / Amiya Cornett.
If you choose wallpaper with lots of pattern, you will have very little need for pictures or artwork. When choosing wallpaper, don’t assume that a small foyer should be papered with an equally small printed design. Some of the prettiest foyers I’ve been in, were small ones, where the paper chosen was large scale and very bold. The effect was wonderful! The entry is the perfect spot for tromp l’oeil. Possibly a mural of a Grecian urn or a large topiary.
Apart from chandeliers, even pendant lighting gains more popularity in decorating the foyer. For instance, Kichler pendant lights come in different styles and you can choose the right one that gives your home a welcoming effect. If your foyers have low ceiling, then instead of long chandeliers and pendant lights, you can fix flush mount or semi-flush mount ceiling lights in your entryway.
When it comes to the amount of lighting, foyer always needs more amount of light as it is the front entrance. Also, see to that you do not provide too much of bright light. That may result in producing glare, right at the entrance, and this may annoy the guests when they step in. But if you have anything really attractive in your foyer or if you have a staircase there, then it is mandatory to use a bright foyer chandelier or spot lights. If you have beautiful pictures or paintings displayed on your walls, you can showcase them with gallery styled accent lights or track lights in your foyers. Accent lighting is always an added advantage for foyer decoration.
For plenty of light and an elegant presence, chandeliers are always the timeless choice for your entryway. You can choose your foyer lighting according to the equipments you have in your home. Since foyer is not truly a living area, people generally give less importance in illuminating or decorating it. As foyer is the entryway for your entire home, foyer lighting should simply determine the overall appeal of your home decor. Moreover, foyer should be given due care for safety purposes also.
